Graduation season is coming up! Have you decided on what to do after college? Most graduates would start applying for jobs right away. But others just want to make it up to themselves after hustling for years to meet all their classes’ deadlines.
If you’re feeling a little pressured to enter the adulting life, take a deep breath. Let us help you figure out what to do after graduation from university and gather your bearings before starting your new career.
8. Take a well-deserved rest
Turn those all-nighters into a full eight hours of rest. We know you’ve been longing for this and your eyebags are begging for it.
7. Social media detox
For students, social media serves as a main channel to communicate with their friends. So it can’t be helped but feel attached to your phones from time to time.
On your break, try to reduce your social media consumption so you can take this time to evaluate your overall well-being, both mentally and physically.
6. Start your fitness journey
Let’s be honest here. Getting swarmed by tons of schoolwork can make you develop unhealthy eating habits. You might have become used to eating midnight snacks while pulling an all-nighter, or relied heavily on iced coffee to get you through the day. Now is the time to undo all that damage and put your health first, folks!
5. Reconnect with family and friends
Remember that one family reunion you’ve missed because of a Calculus exam?
Do you remember how much it hurt when you sent “Next time na lang” in response to your barkada’s weekend hangout?
Despite attending classes five times a week, it seemed like it wasn’t enough to finish all the workload you had. Sacrifices were made to keep you focused on your goals. Now, you’ll find more time to spend with your loved ones, so make the most of it.
4. Secure valid IDs
Make use of your time by applying for valid IDs. Most HR companies take weeks and even months before acknowledging your job application. It’s better to secure these documents as you wait for their emails.
Here’s a quick guide on how to get one:
3. Learn a new skill or hobby
Learning never stops. But instead of going through your books once again, why not try picking up a new hobby? With countless tutorials on YouTube university, you can set new goals for yourself at your own pace. From playing instruments, crocheting, to video editing, you can find almost anything online.
2. Catch-up on your watchlist
You’ve just unlocked unlimited hours of watching on Netflix! Looking back, watching your favorite show made you feel guilty, thinking about how two hours could’ve been spent on reviewing. But this also made you prone to seeing spoilers. But right now, there’s nothing to worry about! You’ve got all the time that you need.
1. But for real, take a break, even for a while.
Repeat after me: You deserve it.
We’re rooting for you, graduates!
